or, I am a square and not a pear…
I recently posted my polka dot short sleeved Granville. The sewing was lovely, if I do say so myself, but the shirt was very Pear-y – and I knew mods would be necessary for my next make.
I posted a few preview pics of the new Granville. I love this pattern. I made the long sleeved version – plackets, cuffs and all. The primary modification I made was to raise the dart and slim down the bottom. I graded down 3 sizes from the waist to the bottom on both the front and back side pattern pieces.
The fabric is a lovely cotton from Cotton & Steel. I’ve never sewn with their fabrics, but man, I will be again. A soft, easy to sew fabric. Just goes to show that fabric selection plus the right pattern makes all the difference!
Well, without much ado – some photos for you:
Check out my placket!
More to come – I’ve been sewing like a fiend. Some previews for you.
But, I’m trying to fix the “house dress” look.
Gah! I HATE my hair right now. Had to say it.
